Sold: I sold this car to a friend's brother, who a year or so later still owes me $300... Sigh. Update: I got almost all the money, but now neither one is my friend. Good to get paid, though.

Mon Aug 31 21:56:45 CDT 1998I am now the owner of an '86 Camaro IROC Z28. This car has a transplanted 350 (5.7l) with TPI because the original 305 was fried. Sadly, it has the 4spd (auto overdrive) automatic.
The car is in good mechanical shape. At first glance, it needs the following work:
Oh, what a wonderful car. Oh, what a git I am for getting rid of this wonderful car. Good 0-60, good 60-100, five speed, 205 HP peak (with the turbo), independent rear suspension, good visibility, comfy seats... sigh.
I got this car by trading a powerbook (I think a 230c) for it. It had a tendency to exhibit electrical problems. I replaced the alternator twice and it still killed batteries, so I figure it had a short someplace. I had to continually charge my battery, and it managed to die at several inopportune times. It's hard to say in retrospect though.
